IEEE Day 2020


Annual IEEE Day Celebration. With a theme of “Leveraging Technology for a Better Tomorrow”,
IEEE Day celebrate the first time in history when engineers worldwide
gathered in 1884 to share their technical ideas.

While the world benefits from what’s new, IEEE focuses on what’s
next. Activities worldwide demonstrate the multiple ways thousands of
IEEE members in local communities in one hundred and sixty
countries join together to collaborate on ideas that leverage
technology into a better tomorrow.
